What a weekend!! It was incredible. We had the most fantastic time in Salt Lake City. This gorgeous vintage show was held at the Salt Lake County Fairgrounds in the beautiful Grand Building. What a great location!! As we are originally from SLC, when we heard where the market was going to be held we knew right away that it would be a terrific location. IT WAS!!
The Vintage Whites Market girls, Jana and Vanessa, are absolutely amazing. We are so appreciative of all their hard work, time, and effort that went into this lovely show. The Grand building looked fantastic. I still can't get over the entrance. Wow!! All those dangling globes and bikes. So cool!!
We loved participating and being inspired by all the other amazing vendors. As a special treat for all the shoppers and vendors alike... there were some pretty incredible people attending the Market. Ben Ashby, Editor in Chief for Folk Magazine, was there, the amazing Jo Packham creator and editor-in-chief of Where Women Create, and our dear friend the lovely and talented Celeste Shaw of Chaps fame...not to mention lots of other wonderful and inspiring people.
Several of our VERY TALENTED vendor friends also made the trip from the Spokane area to SLC to be in the show. It was so fun to see Coquille (Coquille 'vintage' Couture) and Brian (Junk Nation Review) Gallagher, Jennifer Wood (Funky Junk Antique Show), Michelle Craft (3 Craft Chicks) and several other wonderful people in Salt Lake of all places. We also so enjoyed meeting all the talented and creative Utah vendors. There were so many amazing booths and wonderful things to buy, in addition, the SLC shoppers were out of this world!! So excited and enthusiastic. We loved meeting all of you..and we hope that we have tempted you to take a road trip up this way to attend some of the extraordinary vintage shows that the Spokane area/Pacific Northwest has to offer. You won't be disappointed!!
The VWM was extra special for us because it was the perfect blend of business and pleasure. It was so fun to have many of our long-distance family and friends that normally don't get to attend our vintage shows be able to come...and bring their friends...and get excited about all things VINTAGE!! Not only that... but a group of some of the most amazing women from Spokane came down to shop and support all of us who were there. It was wonderful.
I have to say that I have never been around such a loving, supportive, and encouraging group as the incredible people in the vintage world. They are such amazingly generous people and we feel so blessed to know and love them.

Thank you so much Vintage Whites Market for letting us be a part such an AMAZING event and THANK YOU Salt Lake City for showing us the love and being so supportive, inspiring, and enthusiastic. It meant the world to us and we can't wait to come back!!
